Have you ever wondered what happened to the AFB CareerConnect mentors from the Our Stories section? After being gainfully employed and achieving success in the field, what is next for these individuals? Simple, more success! With AFB CareerConnect's new Where Are They Now series, you can catch up with all of your favorite mentors and see what they have been working on.

The first mentor AFB CareerConnect checked in on was recording and performing artist Becka deHaan. The last time we connected with Becka, she released her debut album, "Wait for the Wind," but what has this talented mentor been up to?

As a triple award nominee, Becka released her second album, "Long-awaited, Unexpected: Songs for Christmas" on October 31, 2012. Described as having "a traditional yet soulful, spirited sound," this second album highlights Becka's development as an artist in performance, writing, and arranging music.

“I knew I was never going to need convincing to do a Christmas album,” Becka said. “I’ve had a particular fascination with the Nativity story ever since I started singing solo in 1999; the carols were a wonderful musical and lyrical dwelling place, and it was only a matter of time before I would proudly have a Christmas album in my discography.”

With four nominations for her second album, did Becka ever achieve her first win? Read more of Becka's Where Are They Now story to find out!
